I love these stories but I wish they would tell us more about the "Whys". Why was the letter Z dropped? Why did Michelangelo hate the Sistine Chapel? I would hate it too if I had hung upside down all those years painting it. Hahaha

kbow, I am well aware of that, however as you know in the case of both of those words the X is pronounced as Z. Which is an example of what my colleague who was learning English found confusing.

flanderschristy, Probably for having to lie on his back for so long when he painted the chapel ceiling. :)

Michelangelo damaged his health working on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, but he needed the money to buy marble for sculpting which is what his passion was.

👍🏼#4 and #7 Maybe Michelangelo while he was painting the Sistine Chapel, he predicted already that Fredric Baur will make a history more than his paintings by putting his ashes in pringles can and anyone who’s a Pringles eater can remember the finer salt sprinkled in it.🏺🧂

No.8 - Now we know why there are so few Zeds in English spelling and s many Zees in American. No.4 - Good to know that Baur was buried in a Pringles can AFTER he passed away.

Not many English words use the letter Z however we do use it to produce the particular sound. What a work colleague who was trying to improve his English (not his home language) found confusing were the different sounds produced by the same letters. Xenon and xenophobia come to mind
